Kannamoochi Yaenada

Everybody knows that this song is based on raagas, Nattakurunji and Sahana. But when this album was released, I didnโ€™t even know the raaga Nattakurunji, which incidentally has now become one of my favourite raagams!! And neither did I identify the Sahana part in this song at that time! It was only after a few years that I was able to exactly identify the raagas in the song and started enjoying the classical beauty in it. So, this song being based on classical raagams was not why I liked it instantly on seeing the trailer itself – Aishwarya’s teasing looks, a blushing Tabu, a handsome Ajith, the colour of the costumes & finally, the music! – I liked it all! Later when I saw the entire song, I liked it even more. I would put this song in the category of those Rahman’s songs that have been picturized very well. What about you?

Incidentally, the very first time when I watched the trailer of Alaipayuthey (Snehidhane song) was right after watching the trailer of Kandukondain Kandukondain featuring this song. At that time, I liked this trailer more than Alaipayuthey! :O Anyway, I really wish Rajeev Menon takes a movie soon and Rahman composes music for it. Hope that happens soon!

    i dont know any damn thing abt raagams ๐Ÿ˜› … but the song really is one of my favourites …

    It is indeed a terrific song! And I don’t know much abt raagas too, but I try to read about them in the web. And abt the trailer/movie comparison, in my opinion Alaipaayuthey beats KK hands down.

    F e r r a r i,
    Oh I love KK. It’s one of my all-time fav movies.

    You can always learn about raagams if you wish to ๐Ÿ˜› I like konjum mynakkaLe too

    Welcome to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚
    Yeah Alaipayuthey is of course the best!!

    I remember Chitra mentioning in one of the programs that this song is not a mix of any ragam and is only one. I dont know .. she said that and she also mentioned it was a challenging song for her.

    I love the voice of Yesudas in it. esp. when he says “Paar Kadalil aadiya pinnum….”

    But i think the best of all the song in Ka Ko Ka Ko is Sandhana thendralai…

    As a Director the movie is more flashy – i dont think Minsara kanavu was any closer to be called a good movie… but i somehow feel kakokako was much better – was subtle ..

    one of the few movies where i enjoyed arr’s score – truly melodious – i wonder if he did may maadham too as u hint or maybe mentioned in one of ur other pieces, as that too was exceptionally picturized by p.c.sriram with terrific songs that ages very well both onscreen and on stereo – no one has captured the smell of fresh madras air in the morning better than pc

    Ok…I have no idea about the ragas but as far as I remember this movie came a long time back. And was that Ajith in it? I didn’t knew that. ๐Ÿ™ I have seen just one Tamil movie called “Khaka Khaka” and I don’t know about the ragas but I loved the songs. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Rajiv menon is just good enough for Ads. There is no coherency at all in the movie. One can’t make a full length film with such a mindset. He should try and graduate into making full length movies.

    Oh. But if I am correct, the lines naan enna peNN illaiya en kaNNa adhai nee kaaNa kaNN illaiya are in Sahana. I like the female version more than the duet. Also it has one more extra para ๐Ÿ™‚
    This is one movie where all the songs are brilliant. I canโ€™t call any one song as the best since I like all of it except suttum vizhi very much.
    Yeah this move is much better than Minsara kanavu.

    Great to know that you enjoyed ARRโ€™s music ๐Ÿ™‚ PC captures everything so well!

    Yup Ajith was there. Even I donโ€™t know about the raagas in the songs of Kakka kakka but I like only some two songs in it. Btw, there are better movies than Kakka kakka in Tamil. Try watching some.

    Hope you start enjoying Carnatic music someday ๐Ÿ™‚

    Welcome to my blog! I liked this movie and I didnโ€™t feel so.

    I like songs in this movie but not this movie. Sema bore ! That too abbas suddenly entering aishwarya’s home and start telling barathi kavithais ! Thangala ! egapatta scens itha mathiri ! Though the concept of the movie as a whole is good and camera is good, it is poorly made. Ajith, mammotty, tabu vara scenes ok. mathapadi, i dont like this movie.
    Rajeev menon is best in cinematography, let him do that instead of directing it.
